Ideal I bought this for my daughter. For the money you get an awful lot of tablet! She loves it! She's named it Thomas. I would highly recommend this product. from what I've seen it blitzes the Ipad for performance and price. A+ 01 May 2014
great tablet Wish I'd got this ages ago. Love it. 29 April 2014
The perfect tablet for us. This is the third one purchased. I bought one for myself last year, and have since bought one for my son and now this one for my daughter. We find it a great little tablet, very quick, and are extremely pleased with the performance. I use mine for e-mails, shopping, paying bills & browsing etc., catch-up TV, and also for taking photographs. My son uses his mainly for games and music. My daughter uses hers for revision, you-tube, Facebook, twitter, e-mails and music. I definitely recommend it. 29 April 2014
Acer Iconia Tablet Bought 2 of these items for my young grandchildren and they love them,there have been lots of fun with them and it saves time packing up colouring in books + pencils when we are out and about,which saves a lot of time with young children a must for games in moderen times now. 25 April 2014
Only average for me i am afraid, Blutooth very ropey when holding the device just 3m from stereo but ok when device put down.still trying to find out from acer or anyone if the machine will take a data sim card to go on line and what size, instructions show a slot for one under the mem card slot but on the thing its self there isnt one. I have no wifi 22 April 2014
Lots of apps available. Really nice tablet, easy to use and fast. Very good battery life. and it's very lightweight. Very pleased with purchase 22 April 2014
Good product It's a great device for playing games or checking social media etc. however the only fault is when it crashes but it very quickly resolves itself. Overall I would highly recommend it! 22 April 2014
Great tablet Very easy to use, even for someone who is not too hot with computers. Picture is very good and sound a little tinny but not off putting. Battery life brilliant but ensure you turn it off properly so you are not woken in middle of night when battery goes low! 15 April 2014
easy to use easy to use, only down side is the font size, even at the huge size the letters are tiny. 15 April 2014
Top class tablet I had a kindle fire hd,but was rubbish,apps wouldn't work properly was ver slow,but acer is perfect,it's fast,it's much better than kindle fire hd 15 April 2014
Acer Iconia A1-810 Tablet My first time I have used a tablet and so far I am very pleased with it. Early days yet and I'm still learning but would recommend this product as I have no negatives about it yet. 15 April 2014
Great android tablet Not the most expensive nor the cheapest. Does what you need a tablet for in a good quality body. The size is not to small or big. Just right. Well done Acer. 08 April 2014
Acer Tablet Tablet is good value for money and performs contrast to the wallet/case which was the recommended one for the product. Far better cases can be obtained on the internet for much much less..... 08 April 2014
very happy My son bought this with his birthday money, he is very impressed with all its functions. He doesn't like laptops or computers but this a lot easier to use. Basically its always not very far away for him. Watching films, YouTube and speaking to his friend on video chat and Facebook. He play lots of games and researchers for information to help with his homework! 25 March 2014
Acer Iconia A1-810 7.9 inch HD Tablet 16GB This tablet is one of the best value tablets available. It can be connected to the HDMI connector on a TV. This then allows you to watch a streaming film. Only slight reservation is the volume is slightly too low when watching films on the tablet even when turned to full volume,but when you plug in a set of earphones it is brilliant. However this does not detract from the overall experience. 25 March 2014
acer icona a1-810 16gb Reviews said the screen was just ok but I think its pretty good and I'm fussy let me tell you, it feels expensive and performs well, battery life is very good too, getting on the net is super fast and doesn't mess about and connectivity is good also with micro sd and hdmi ports. price has dropped another £20 so what more do you want. would recommend. 25 March 2014
A useful and value-for-money tablet This was a gift for a friend so I can't give too many details but so far she seems delighted. She is an elderly lady without great technical knowledge or experience but tells me she's enjoying finding out about what it can do. As it's Android based, it is easier for her to use as she has a smartphone on the same platform (which was why I bought it for her in the first place). All in all, and as far as I can see, a good purchase. 18 March 2014
Acer iconia Never going to be an I pad mini this one even though it shares the screen ratios, But having said that if you just wanna surf the net and watch a few you tube movies its great..I find that the TeX could be sharper as well..not really a good kindle replacement in that respect Well worth the money tho if u don't mind a bit of weight to your device..also a bit patchy battery life where near the official spec..although they never are :-) 12 March 2014
acer iconia A1 810 Brill - super- just what I needed 11 March 2014
nice tablet for a beginner Bought this for my partner who isn't great with technology but he seems to like it. He did say it could do with the screen being a bit brighter when he's reading on it at night and its not too good in sunlight either. 04 March 2014

I have just driven through traffic for over an hour to pick up this item based on your advertisements online and in your catalogue. Paid and collected it, and have arrived home to find it is white. Your advertising doesn't state I'd get anything other than black. It even shows a black one on the box but says in tiny letters that it is pure white. I now have to drive back tomorrow and get a refund as white is a distraction to the eye line when watching movies.

Please update your advert.
